[Commlist] Call for Proposals: Digital Threats to Democracy

Mon Jan 28 16:38:23 GMT 2019

Call for Proposals: Digital Threats to Democracy (deadline February 3)

The Media & Democracy program at the Social Science Research Council
is pleased to announce a call for proposals for the “Digital Threats
to Democracy: Comparative Lessons and Possible Remedies” workshop.
This workshop will bring together social science and humanities
scholars to present comparative research on how countries adapt and
respond to digital threats to democracy.

The workshop, organized in collaboration with Cristian Vaccari
(Loughborough University), will be held at the Social Science Research
Council in New York City on June 13-14, 2019. Accepted participants’
travel and accommodation costs will be covered by the organizers.

We welcome applications from both junior and senior scholars across
all disciplines. However, the focused nature of the workshop demands
that we limit participation to 10–12 authors. Thus, our selection will
be determined not only by the quality of submissions, but also by
their thematic fit and complementarity.

A selection of the papers presented at the workshop will be invited to
submit full manuscripts of up to 8,000 words for publication in a
special issue of the International Journal of Press/Politics, subject
to peer-review.

To apply, please submit a current C.V. and an abstract of up to 500
words to (mdapplications /at/ by February 3, 2019.

For more information, please see the SSRC website:

Please feel free to share this announcement with anyone who may be interested.
